Seminary Website Wins Award for Best Education Site

by MOSAIC Editorial Team

At the end of 2015, we were delighted to receive a Fisher's Net Award for our new website, shms.edu, which launched in August.

The Fisher's Net Awards are a "way to encourage and recognize churches, ministries, and apostolates that have drawn from the Church's rich history of using art, design, and technology to reinvent the proclamation of the Gospel for a modern age in the new modern public square."

Our site is in good company: other 2015 winners include Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire ministry, LifeTeen, and Catholic Answers. The main criteria on which nominees were judged were Visual Appeal, Information Architecture, and Technical Performance/Achievement.

The redesigned website is an important part of our focus on improving Sacred Heart's brand and identity in the educational marketplace. It was designed and developed by Highland Creative Co., a Michigan-based design agency which focuses on helping Catholics share their mission and message.

In today's world, Catholics have sometimes lagged behind other causes and organizations in the work of communicating with the world. The Fisher's Net Awards herald a return to the days when the Church excelled at spreading through the gospel through design and technology.

Receiving one of these awards is an honor for the seminary, considering the impressive ways that Catholics are now ministering online. We are grateful that our website was recognized, and we will continue striving to faithfully serve the students, faculty, and friends of the seminary both online and on campus.
